Traffic Inn
Ranked #8 of 339 Specialty Lodging in Chengdu
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We have been upgrade in a room of 3 persons instead of the basic dormitory.
The toilets and the showers are very clean ( if there are no more toilet paper you just call the staff and they put some back 10 minutes later)
The staff is really kind. Special review for coco who knows every night club and bar in chengdu and get you in for free.
The location is nearby the bus station which is very convenient to go to leshan or the panda base.

Room Tip: the 3 beds room is nice.

Stayed here for 3 nights, 3 bed dorm ¥50 per night, shared bathroom (toilet paper provided!). Rooms were nice & clean, not noisy, only criticism was 1 room didn't have working locker.

Nice relaxed common area where you can watch movies, play pool. Location good too, about 5 mins walk from Metro, and next to a bus station (good for onward travel to Jiuzhaigou).

By far the best thing about this hostel was the staff (who spoke great english). They are so warm and friendly, and go out of their way to help you out, be it onward travel bookings or advice on where to go in Chengdu. They basically sorted everything out for me, calling to book hostels, booking train & bus tickets for me etc. Couldn't have asked for better service. was especially useful as I had to change travel plans due to bad weather and was unable to get to Jiuzhaigou. They sorted out cancelling hostels, & helped me replan another route away from the travel chaos.

Thank you so much Traffic Inn. Would happily stay here again!

We stayed at this hostel in August 2012 for a few nights, we then went off to Jiuzhaigou for a couple of days before returning to Traffic Inn. We had a double room with shared bath. The shared bathrooms and toilets were immaculately clean and always available. Nice common area where food is served - breakfast and dinner both good. Room basic but clean and everything you need. Great staff who can arrange train tickets, tours and anything else you need. We did the combo Panda tour and Sechuan opera, which was really good value. Very close to subway station. Overall, great stay and would definitely come back here again.

So far this is the best hostel we have stayed in (after 1 month in China). We stayed here twice, once in a twin private room, then again in a 6 bed dorm. Both times we found the rooms really clean and comfortable, toothbrushes, slippers, soap and lockers were provided. There is also room for hanging washing on a terrace. There is a little library, which was very useful. There were also a few communal areas, dotted about the buildings which meant it was really easy to meet people.
The staff were really friendly and helpful - setting up games and films in the evening and booking train tickets.
The location is ideal, literally next to the bus station and round the corner from a metro stop. There is also a restaurant close by that is really good and cheap - come out of the hostel, turn left on the road and its the first corner on your left. No English on the menu, but everything we tried was delicious.

The location is supreme, and they also have a great saloon with lots of movies and books and even a good pool table.
Also the fares are low..

First room we had was not made up. Second room we had have a very strong cigarette smell. Nothing positive at all to comment. Hostel side on the contrary is cheaper, nicer place for communal hangout and rooms generally basic and fine.

We only stayed here for one night because it is very close to the main bus station in Chengdu so perfect if you are venturing to Jiuzhaigou, Mt Emei etc. it was simple but clean and all you needed it to be really. Would recommend staying here.
